The National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers has appointed a new chairman for 2013 and 2014. Marcus Grimshaw, of Fiducia Commercial Solutions, has been a director of the association since 2009 and was vice-chairman from 2011. Following an election of directors at the association’s AGM, held at the Westminster Park Plaza in November last year, Marcus was appointed as chairman effective at the first NACFB board meeting of the new year.
Marcus says having celebrated the NACFB’s 20th anniversary recently and having been involved closely as a main board member in guiding the association through four years of tremendous change in our industry, I am delighted to have been voted into the chair for the next two years: “I believe that, during this period, we shall experience many defining moments on our road to recovery. We start the year in our prestigious new offices in London and I am very excited about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of us.
“Our main focus this year includes training and education, increasing our brand awareness and providing more benefits for our members. I am pleased to be able to continue working with Adam Tyler and his team in London, as well as what I would describe as a very strong board of directors. With this in mind, I feel confident that all of our objectives will be achieved.”
Adam Tyler, Chief Executive, adds I have worked alongside Marcus even before his appointment four years ago and I am delighted that the board has decided to appoint him as chairman for the next two years: “I have no doubt that 2013 will be a challenging but exciting year for the NACFB and all commercial finance brokers. It is vital that the association has a strong board to guide its members through another uncertain period.”
